Irish Cream Iced Coffee

I have really been enjoying iced coffee this summer! It’s so tasty, and I wanted to try to make my own.  The first recipe I was on Ree Drummond’s blog.  Her recipe was a little to massive on scale for me, but I really like her method.  The next recipe I was on Averie Cooks Blog.  Her recipe was more my style.


3 Tbsp Whole Espresso Beans

6-8 C. Water

Bailey’s Irish Cream


Coffee Grinder

Coffee Machine

Ice Cube Tray


1. Put whole espresso beans into the coffee grinder.  Grind beans until they are fine pieces.

2. Brew 6 or 8 cups of coffee in machine.

3. Chill hot coffee in the fridge for at least 30 minutes. I like to chill mine for about an hour.

  • For colder iced coffee chill Irish cream and mug along with coffee.
  • I also like to make a few coffee cubes instead of ice cubes.  This helps keep the coffee from become watered down.

4. Pour coffee into mug.  Pour Bailey’s Irish Cream into mug. I only pour the cream until I can see is starting to swirl in the coffee.

5. Add coffee or ice cubes if desired and Enjoy!

**Variation:  I also have used milk and some butterscotch schnapps instead of the Irish cream and that works well too!
